    Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 is Here + The New MSDN


    clip_image003You’ve probably read a lot about this already, so I’ll keep it short:  VS 2010 Beta 2 is available via MSDN – details here:  Full availability is scheduled for 10/21.

    Here’s what you should do to get started:


    The New MSDN

    MSDN and Visual Studio editions are getting facelifts.   What’s happening to MSDN?  Take a peek here:

    The biggest thing here is the new SKU changes we’re making in 2010. The “role-based” editions of Visual Studio and Team System has been revamped to more closely reflect SKU’s used by Windows and Office (Brian Harry posts details here):

    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN: the comprehensive suite of application lifecycle management tools for software teams to ensure quality results from design to deployment.
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Premium with MSDN: a complete toolset for developers to deliver scalable, high quality applications.
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional with MSDN: the essential tool for professional development tasks to assist developers in implementing their ideas easily.

    Cleaner, yes?
